I am having an issue where my computer works as expected so that when I click on a window, it comes to the "top".  However, periodically the windows explorer windows are always on top (ie explorer window covers up the adobe window even when I click on the adobe window).  The only way to view the application under the windows window is to minimize the windows explorer window.

Any suggestions?

*this is a windows 7 64 bit machine*

Hi,

As far as i know this is a known 'bug' for windows that have been open for a while. The all but very annoying solution is close all explorer tabs and it will behave again as wanted.

Sorry for not bringing you 'nicer' comment.
